    If you have been out on the water kayaking and were injured in an accident, you may now be wondering where you can find kayaking injury advice.

    Kayaking incidents

    Kayaking incidents may be relatively rare, but this is not likely to be of much consolation to you if you sustained an injury in one. Kayaking can be invigorating and a great way to socialise with your family or friends. Experiencing the peace and quiet of an open lake, the interest of going down a river or the thrill of sea kayaking can be one of your greatest pleasures. Even if you have been kayaking many times without any problem, you could be injured in many ways when out on the water.

    The immediate risks of kayaking include falling in the water, hitting your head on a rock and capsizing the boat. These can be unpleasant enough, but sometimes such incidents can result in severe injuries.

    To pursue a claim, the accident must have been the result of someone else’s actions or negligence. You may have been out with other people, or met others on the water coming your way. Ideally, everyone behaves with care and responsibility while out on the water; unfortunately, this may not always be the case. If you hired faulty equipment that led to your accident, then the person who gave you the equipment might be held accountable for your injuries.
